Silos for liquids



Metal silos for liquids are designed for chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical industries for long-term and short-term storage of soft and hard water, solutions, as well as different chemically non-aggressive medium. Their storage is possible at any time of the year in regions with a warm, moderately cold and cold climate.

The Saratov Reservoir Plant produces silos of different volume, with a minimum capacity of 5 m3.

They are mounted aboveground, which requires the clearing of the site and the preparation of a waterproofing foundation. Waterproofing allows to prevent the destruction of the concrete base by moisture and atmosphere precipitation.

The drawing of silo for liquids of a volume 93 m3

Design of silos for liquids

They appear as a closed sealed vessel for liquid products, vertically oriented. Silos for liquids are manufactured of structural steel grades 09G2S or St3sp5 with corrosion-resistant coating.

The roof, as well as the bottom, can be of two types: conical and flat.

The conical bottom is optimally suited for short-term liquid storage during technological operations, for example, their cleaning. Their installation is made on special metal supports, the height of which is determined by the requirements of the project.

Flat bottom is used when long-term storage of substances or operating with a large volume is required.

Complete set of steel silo for liquids

The finished silo is shipped to the facility together with the necessary set of metal structures, which includes:

  • stairs with circular cage;
  • service platforms with grille flooring;
  • supports welded to the body or supplied separately.

At the Customer's request, the silos may be produced with an additional nozzle for the displacer level instrument installation, which determines filling level.
